    Being looking all over for this service and tried a couple of 'real' twitter followers providers, but so far I have had no luck. Is it even possible to buy real, interacting followers and if so, where?

    Thanks for your time,

    James :)

    If you think about it logically, the answer I'd say is definitely a 'no'.

    You can't force someone to follow you and if you do - they're not doing it off their own backs and so aren't natural followers.

    IMO, the best follower you can get is someone who follows you by their own choice, not because you've followed them, but because after seeing one of your tweets they've thought:
    "I'm going to follow them as I'm interested in what they're tweeting".

    The only way I can see buying them working is this:
    The person selling the followers, keeps retweeting your tweets until X amount of natural 1-way followers have followed you.

    Once that number is reached then the purchase has been made.

    Yet, people don't do this - they have 1000s of twitter accounts that are mainly robots and they just get X amount of them following you.

    The only advantage of buying them is it makes your account look more popular than it actually is.

    Thanks for that. I think I will give up on the idea of buying followers now.

    I would have to agree, there is no such thing a real twitter followers. When you get the service it is from those that have their own accounts in the thousands so you can have a bunch of followers. The only thing it is good for is to place the followers on your homepage of your site so others think you are really important with all the followers.

    You can "buy" them yourself through following real accounts that tend to follow back automatically and then unfollowing them. A good percentage of them will also unfollow you later on, but many will stick. Using this method in a non-agressive way, I have over 19,000 legit followers. Even if I unfollowed all of them within a couple of weeks I doubt that more than 5-6 thousands would unfollow me as well!

    The 'follow for a follow' plan does work, but if I follow someone, I'll keep following them unless they unfollow me.

    Via this method, I have accounts over 100,000 followers.

    Once you have larger accounts you can then do Shout-Outs / Retweets for the smaller accounts and those smaller accounts grow quicker.

    It's the 'snow ball effect' - the more followers you have, the faster your followers increase, and so on.

    What subject and which countries are your 19k followers on/from?

    yea, i am sure that you can buy some real followers. i bought a gig from fiverr a long time ago and i received real followers. the seller simply did the follow/unfollow method with my account until the correct amount of followers were reached, i gave him my user and pass and then changed it after he was done with the gig. you don't need to pay someone for this method though, you can easily do it yourself with a bot or manually. yes, this method does work but you are probably not getting the highest quality followers because (like said above) some of these followers are only following you back because you followed them first.

    Oh yeah, I could do that for people, no problem.

    I think what the OP is meaning is where you buy, say, 15,000 followers and within a few hours, bang, you have over 15,000 followers. This is what is going on, on Fiverr and I fully expect that is what the user further up is doing, who suggested to look at the link in his signature.

    Now if the person gave me shout-outs until X amount of their followers were following me, then that would be much more worthwhile as that means real people following me optionally.

    There's also a question of what constitutes as "Real" anyway...

    Is a real follower just someone who
    - is human?
    - actually uses twitter on a regular basis for their personal use?

    A lot of these Follow/Follow back programs don't really do anything other than just increase the count. These people who will follow you often eventually unfollow you after a few days.

    There is some benefits in that you'll have an easier time attracting Real Real followers when you have a high follow count... The following count "validates" your account... Even though there really isn't any followers.

    Then comes the question of which 'programs' you're referring to.

    If someone unfollows me when I'm doing the follow for a follow approach, they themselves get unfollowed.

    It depends on who you target in the first place. Following someone simply because they always follow back IMO, isn't the right way to go. I follow people who I know are interested in the subject that my Twitter account relates to; not just any average Joe.

    I haven't done much Twitter stuff in general, it started off as a small unfocused experiment that went well. I also unfollow everyone that unfollows me of course! Nonetheless, I was never pushing the limits of following / unfollowing ratios and I just did it occasionally via automatic tools while I was keeping some real interaction with followers. My followers have no specific subject and they come from the usual countries: 50+% from USA, 9% from UK, Canada and Brazil 4+%. I haven't done any follower buying btw!

    I wouldn't try to buy them. I've bought "real" followers over 10 times and everytime it was a bust. They weren't real accounts and my follower amount would drop 200+ a day. I would do follow 4 follow or trend scanning (best way).

    I've used Boost My Presence on multiple occasions. They are 100 % real followers being that some of them have interacted with me. But some do unfollow or unlike Facebook pages. I've found it to be most effective when I engage with my new followers. I also found that on my Facebook page after purchasing 500 Likes about 300 stayed and about 10% have been interacting with my post. Lol didn't plan on doing a full review! However on my twitter page I bought fake followers just to gain the appearance to help my brand (Music) so Now I have 30k followers and now daily I'm getting followers from real people. I'm super late but there's my 2 cents! lol

    Best way to do it is buy fake first so you can mass follow REAL people that will follow you back. I developed a system about a week ago that pops 50,000 fake into an account first and then I follow about 20-30,000 people a day. I can get 10,000 REAL twitter followers that interact in a few days
